Reasonable adjustments

We have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to make sure disabled students are not disadvantaged. If you need reasonable adjustments, you must apply as soon as possible, and well in advance of the exam period.

Any reasonable adjustments to exams and teaching will be shown in this section. Reasonable adjustments to deadlines and some other reasonable adjustments, such as access to support workers, will not be shown here.

For more information on the types of support available, see our Disability support web pages. If you would like to discuss this in more depth, you can make an appointment at one of our Information Points.

If these adjustments in this section are not correct, use our Online enquiry form.

Alumni network

When you complete your course, you will become a member of the UWE Bristol Alumni network and some of your personal information will be shared with the Alumni team. This information will be processed by UWE Bristol in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Data Protection Act 2018.

My emergency contacts

In an emergency, for example if you're seriously ill or involved in an accident, we may reach out to your trusted emergency contact. This is normally with your permission. This helps us reduce the potential risks and to enhance the support available to you.

You must enter details of at least one person who we can contact.

We will use your emergency contacts in the order they are shown on MYUWE, starting with the contact listed first. Please keep your details up to date.

Add an emergency contact

To add an emergency contact, select 'Edit my emergency contacts'. In the new window, find the 'Contacts in the Event of an Emergency' section and select 'Add new contact'. Add a name and phone number.

Change an emergency contact

You can edit your emergency contacts by selecting 'Edit' in the Action column, and then selecting the 'Go' button. If you have more than one contact listed, you will also have the option to 'Move up' or 'Move down' that contact in the list, or 'Remove' the contact.
